Raewyn of decocraftsdigicrafts invited me to take part in the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. Thanks, Raewyn! The challenge is to “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.
Preparations were underway in the Kingdom of Shatavia for the coronation of their new queen. Although she was a foreigner she was next in line and her subjects were ready to love her. They were heralding her arrival in the country with ribbons and banners of rainbow hues which decked the streets and coloured the houses. The limousine carried her from the airport to the palace.
“Your majesty” her courtiers bowed deeply.
“Get up.” She was cross. No sleep and a twenty-four hour flight were taking their toll. “When is the coronation taking place?” she asked.
“Tomorrow at noon.”
“I want to see the throne as soon as possible.”
“Immediately Your Majesty. Come this way.” She followed them. The track was well-worn. The grass was green. Delicate little white flowers waved their heads in the breeze.
“The throne is here Your Majesty.”
“I didn’t want the toilet you idiot, I wanted to see where I would be crowned.”
So now I’m supposed to invite someone else to join in the fun. That’s easy, I nominate Rebecca Patajac from Love a Literary Life. No obligation, Rebecca!
